The front page of the San Francisco Chronicle today (8/10/14) featured a story about the restoration of the Ten Mile River watershed in Mendocino County.  The project is led by the Nature Conservancy which is working with landowners along the waterway to restore the river’s wetlands and bring back the coho salmon.   There are many parallels between this project and the Salt River project.
